Alabama Coach Nick Saban Wants to Spread Misinformation, But Doesn’t Know How to Write on Message Boards

Nick Saban doesn't know exactly how this "Internet" thing works, but if he did, oh boy, he'd show you.

The irascible University of Alabama football coach let reporters know he doesn't traffic in the Interwebs by chewing out — well, not the reporters, really, but somebody at the Crimson Tide's preseason practice news conference.

Responding to preseason Internet rumors (which are largely created and kept alive via anonymous message board posters, not beat writers) and preseason polls (which are most widely publicized by the conferences, which compile the polls through coaches' voting), Saban lashed out at the assembled media because, well, they were there.

"I don't know where you all get your information," Saban said. "Every time someone posts something on a message board, I'm going to start messing with you. I don't know how to do that, but I'm going to start doing it. And every day I'm going to post something that's just total B.S. so you all can go crazy out there on misinformation and bad information."

Check out Saban's full comments in the video of the news conference below.
